I think I have a theory, it could be to power "USB powered" devices?

I have a serial ATA 10,000 rpm Raptor harddrive with a DFI lanparty pro Motherboard with onchip by intel. Some things might have different names in your bios but, it will be close enough to figure it out on your own.
To setup a Serial ata go into your bios and look for an option called integrated peripherals.
Look for something like onchip IDE Device and hit enter
in that screen look and find ***On-Chip Serial ATA Settings***
for on chip serial ata put it on auto mode and save the bios settings
Your computer will restart and see if your harddrive is recognized, if its too fast go into the bios again after you restart the pc by hitting delete key rapidly.
Go into standard Cmos Features
The IDE channel 0 Master should show a harddrive recognized to the right. (make shure harddrive is on master 0)
now go into advanced Bios Features
Look for Harddisk boot priority
Make shure your harddrive is set to the number one slot(has to be first)
if you have 2 harddrives put the harddrive you want the operating system to be on the first space(#1) slot.
save your settings (F10)
Your now done
I didnt have to use any kind of floppy up to this point to install my sata harddrive.
After you load windows and it keeps on asking you for a driver for the harddrive then proceed to using your floppy that came with your motherboard.
Wasnt that difficult was it lol?
lmao what did i tell you, easy stuff....

Ok, notice all those little inward-bending pieces of metal on the edge of all the ports? Should I cut those off, bend them outward, or do anything with them at all?

Am I going to have a crappy system unless I do that? And are you talking about installing both driver sets within windows, or using both drivers when installing windows?

I have my drive in the sata 2 i just did it wothout thinking. Its made no difference, the platinum version of the board is near idiot proof so i expect the plain version is just the same.
